I’m thirty years old and hail from Belfast in Northern Ireland. I read a fair bit of both fiction and non-fiction but I’m particularly keen on the science fiction genre and its sub genres, such as alternative history and space colonization. I studied History & Politics at Queen’s University in Belfast and maintain a keen interest in these subjects. Veritas Dawn is my first novel. Although I would class the story as “soft” science fiction I’ve also attempted to integrate philosophical themes as well as complex and believable characters. Hopefully I’ve managed to pull this off. I have also self-published a novel set in my home city of Belfast, called The Red Star of Ulster and currently I am working on a third book entitled American Nemesis. I currently live in the seaside town of Holywood with my fiancée Jackie.
